Voting for WIMI Awards 2022 closes on Friday 26th August

Organisers of the Women In Meat Industry Awards are reporting high turnout as members of the UK meat industry vote for their finalists in this year’s programme. Voting closes next Friday 26th August.

Voting is underway to decide the finalists across 11 categories in this year’s WIMI Awards.

Over eight thousand votes were received for the 2021 programme, and organisers report that 2022 volumes are about to exceed last year’s grand total, with more than a week still to go until the forum closes.

From Foodservice to Craft Butchery, the awards recognise female talent across the various subsectors of the British and Irish meat industries. The yearly initiative is driven by company or individual nominations and votes to highlight individuals who are really making a difference.
